Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018, dir. Christopher McQuarrie)

A direct continuation of the story from 5 sees this move at breakneck pace. Cruise has never ran so much and the double crosses and face swapping are enjoyable as ever. Great stunts and frantic action scenes see the series staying on top form. Excellent.

Another review? Sure! Here’s Eamonn’s.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018, dir. Ron Howard)

Whether needed or not, this origin story is an enjoyable romp through the Star Wars backlot. Solid action and decent performances from Ehrenreich and Glover as Han and Lando, and ably supported by Harrelson, Newton and Bettany. Good popcorn fodder. 😀

Want another opinion? Here’s Eamonn’s opinion.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018, dir. Ron Howard)

A Han Solo origin tale. After a clunky and stagey first act, this heist western SF hybrid finds its feet, even though its nominal lead is a black hole around which much more interesting support stuff occurs. Inconsequential.

Boys in the Trees (2016, dir. Nicholas Verso)

A teen struggles with his past and future one Halloween. Excellent little coming-of-age drama with a supernatural edge. Slight, but beautifully shot and performed, and it doesn’t do the things lesser movies might have.
